It has been really fun getting to show you all our garden we have been working on for so long. (see article on Domino.com here) It has been quite the journey these last three years, and in case you missed it, you can see all of the before pictures and read the background story in this article.
Today I thought I would talk more about the details of our garden makeover. Keep in mind that this is where we started...[caption id="attachment_9071" align="aligncenter" width="640"] November 2013[/caption] And here we are now!
For this garden space, I really wanted a "put together organically over time" feel. Our house was built in the early 1920's, and back in the day, this area was supposedly a beautiful rose garden. What I really love about design is bringing life to a space, breathing art and color and texture to it. It is so gratifying to turn something not so great into something beautiful.
Once we got the pavers set in the center of the garden (we used these 18x18 pavers from Home Depot), I was immediately imagining what I wanted the dining set to look like.
